Abstract Studies

Older abstract studies. In order of appearance:


The main inspiration for this painting was the murder of a young student (Alexis Grigoropoulos) by a policeman in Athens on December 2008, that began a huge wave of demonstrations against police brutality. This painting was exhibited along with many others at the React Festival in Syros.

Untitled (black)

This very simple painting was exhibited also at the React Festival in Syros. The limited use of colors (only three: black, silver and red) has, I suppose, a symbolic meaning.
